Peter and Whalid are American born. Jorge and Pepe are undocumented immigrants from Mexico. They are an all-star quartet of busboys who work in a swanky New York restaurant.
This band of brothers on the job is an amazing team - filling bread baskets, folding napkins, slicing lemons, clearing tables and delivering food to unseen customers in a busboy ballet of crisscross, swerve, and dodge. They bond and banter, show off and hide their secrets like only a team of laborers can.
For these men what you take home each night in cash is what keeps your head above water. When a shocking event threatens to shatter their economic security and dreams of a better life, the need to take care of number one first opens a giant and dangerous chasm between the brothers.
